Off the planet...
Sorry guys, I know I've barely been here around lately. My schedule is jam packed these days. Between the girls summer activities and my work schedule, it's nuts.
But I wanted to shoot out a little update on Emilee since I've gotten quite a few emails asking how she is doing or how her appointment went or offering suggestions on her headaches - all of which I deeply appreciate :)
We had our appointment with the neurologist last Wednesday. It was a freakin' all day affair and I wasn't expecting that at all. She had been officially diagnosed as having migraines. After reviewing all of our options of treatment and prevention, we chose to get a prescription for Topamax. As with any medication, there is a risk of side effects. Her neurologist said we may get a visit from three of the seven dwarfs: Sleepy, Dopey & Grumpy. But almost a week into it, she is doing great. She is taking one pill nightly and we will begin taking one every moening and every night on Wednesday. Emilee is doing wonderfully at remembering to take her pills and I truly think that is because they are helping so much. And grumpy? Not that I can tell. In fact, I have to say I have seen so much of the old Emilee this week that I am just tickled. My happy carefree daughter is back and I can't tell you how amazing that is!
To be on the safe side, we also had an MRI done to rule out the possibility of any noggin tumors. I haven't heard back on the reults from the MRI yet but I am thinking everything is cool.
Emilee also has a list of triggers and is keeping a headache diary of all the headaches she gets, how bad they were and what she did previous to getting them. This way she can learn how to prevent them.
She is really doing much better and I want to thank all of you for your suggestions and concern :)

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
